    Hi
    Is there a recommended thread count for different platforms?

    PC
    XBOX,PLAYSTATION
    SWITCH
    MOBILE

    At the moment the default is 8, does that assume a quad core PC?
    Thanks!

    ps. mainly interested in havok

    For Havok, this is actually not a hint, but an actual thread count. I can give you advice for each of these, but considering that I've just removed ThreadCountHint and made it work out of the box on all platforms, might be better to just tell you to wait for the next release and it will be solved. :)

    If you still need advice on it I can share, but in short it should be the number of threads you can get on a particular machine. On a quad core PC it is typically 8.
